Sheffield United manager Nigel Clough has paid his respects to a fan known to some as the club's 'most loyal supporter'.
David Spencer, known affectionately as "shred", died yesterday aged 61.
Sheffield United have paid tribute to one of their best-known fans, who has died.
David 'Shred' Spencer had supported the Blades through thick and thin and organised coaches to away matches for many years until his death yesterday at the age of 61.
Hundreds have now backed a campaign to get a stand at Bramall Lane named after him and players at today's match away at Crawley wore black armbands as a mark of respect.
David was a very, very unassuming man, who didn't want any fuss. We tried to honour him last year and he didn't want it. We will be talking to his family about what they want.
Hull City boss Steve Bruce has given East Yorkshire neighbours North Ferriby a good luck message ahead of their FA Trophy semi-final today.
The Villagers are level 2-2 with Bath and are just 90 minutes away from setting a date for the final in Wembley.
Bruce led his team to the FA Cup final last season and explained how much of a boost playing at the national ground could be:
Sheffield United will wear black armbands at their game against Crawley Town in memory of one of their best-known fans. David Spencer, or "Shred" as he is affectionatley known, died yesterday.
All at SUFC are saddened to learn of the passing of well-known Blade David Spencer, commonly known as Shred. Condolences. #RIPShred

The Women's Rugby World Cup has gone on show in Halifax today.
England, under the captaincy of Katy McLean, won the tournament in France this year, courtesy of a 21-9 victory over Canada in the final.
Now the cup's been brought to Ovenden Park, as Halifax Ladies play Derby Vipers.
This is a fantastic honour for the club. With our game against Derby now taking place on the same day we are hoping that the appearance of the cup will act as an inspiration to the ladies and show what hard work and determination can achieve.
Non-league side North Ferriby United are just 90 minutes away from an FA Trophy final at Wembley.
The Villagers will welcome Bath tomorrow in the second leg of their semi-final after the first game between the sides finished in a two-all draw last weekend.
If they can come out on top it will be the second time in their 81-year history the club have played at the home of English football.
